Ideas for Your Ugly Sweater Party: It’s Time to Get Your Tacky On

I’m dreaming of an ugly Christmas…

For the past couple of years my family has enjoyed hosting an ugly sweater party right after Thanksgiving to get the holiday season rolling.  It’s a lot of fun to plan and throw.  Sometime the best medicine for the stress of the holiday grind is just to get silly! 🙂

Thank You

Thank you Jesus…

for worn pants

and warm coats.


for ease of food

and eaves of comfort.


for adversity triumph

and adversary’s challenge.

(both make us stronger)


for breath and breadth of life.

Service Protest: How Helping Others Helps Us

There are people in our country grieving right now.

That is reality.  Protesters have moved quickly from denial to anger in their attempts to process the election.  I have known that feeling.  It is not a pleasant place to be.

In their grief, people want to do something.  Peaceful protests may cause the individual to feel better, but do they really correct the problem?  Our energies are better spent on people than on protests.  We grow as individuals when we interact with people who share different views, different experiences.  If everyone around us is always affirming us, will there ever be discussion that leads to compromise, that leads to a way forward?
